More ways to control what you read and share
Last year we launched volume "sliders" to help you tune the posts in your main stream (http://goo.gl/wrHDD
), and since then we've extended this feature across Google+. Today we're excited to roll out three related improvements that give you even more control over what you read and share.
1) Whether it's family members or epic bros, we've all got circles of friends whose content we don't want to miss. By moving a circle's slider all the way to the right, you can now get notified whenever they share something new.
2) For these select circles, we often have news we really want to share -- like getting engaged, or landing a job. In these cases you can now check "Also send email" when sharing, to help make sure your friends see your message.
3) Finally, we all have a chatty Cathy (or Charles) in our circles. We still want to enjoy their posts in the stream, but we don't want a notification every time they share with us. Now you can do exactly that: just click “Mute” from notifications or their profile.
We're rolling out these features over the next day or two, so check back soon if you don't see them yet. We hope you enjoy these new improvements, and we look forward to hearing your feedback in the comments!#googleplusupdate
